Martyn Ashton - Rehab
I'm a positive person and still very much enjoy life to the full. I remain very pro-active with my personal fitness and want to be able to maintain that healthy lifestyle into the coming years.
I've set this page up in response to a post I placed on my Facebook page , where I asked if anyone would be interested in buying my C59 Colnago road bike, the sale of which could help towards funding physiotherapy, house mods and adapted gym equipment.
Sounds simple eh?
The Colnago bike in question was used by Myself, Danny MacAskill and Chris Akrigg in the film Road Bike Party 2 (which you can watch below).
My fantastic friends on Facebook really, really want me to keep the bike, but still be able to plan my rehab and physio in 2016. The general conscensous was I should set this page up instead. So here it is guys ;-)
I'm very grateful for all the incredible support I receive each and everyday. Thank you all for that, you are awesome.
Hi Martyn, grew up watch your videos and buying MBUK. I'm a biomechanics coach and have a charity that works with athletes across the board. We help improve function, performance, rehab etc. I lecture to Physios, Personal Trainers, massage therapists about screening the body for mechanical restrictions and planning a rehab programme. Would be more than happy to offer these services to you. As a sponsored athlete this would all be free. Hope to hear from you!
Martyn whatever happens, if you're stuck again ask your friends on FB for help, selling bikes isn't an option as a garage of lush bikes is the best inspiration to get well again (I know, I have been there myself) Don't sell away hope when you have people out here who owe you so much xxx
Olease help me
So happy for him..... Please Martyn, never give up, you are my hero..!!
Hi Martyn, Having known you since the Cycle Action days and bumping into you at various cycling events over the years, I've never met anyone as down to earth and inspirational as you. Pushing boundaries is what you do best and still do, be strong you have many followers who believe in you!
Life tried you hard but please do keep in mind we are all with you. Thank you for showing us the impossible and thank you for the example you set and continue to give to all of us. On behalf of the Lanfranco Bikes team we wish you all the best.
Merry Christmas Martyn!
Wow, what an achievement! Well deserved Martyn. I used to watch your vids over and over back in the day and even had the pleasure of seeing you and getting an autograph at a bike show! The likes of Chainspotting and Tricks and Stunts were inspiring and so motivating. It's great to see you back on the trails in your new clips, your determination is amazing and you'll always be a legend. Keep up the good work!
I remember buying the first MBUK you and Hawsey were in back in the early 90's, and I marvelled at you both at Bike 95 at Olympia in London as a youngster still riding my paper-round bike! My friends and I wore out VHS copies of Chainspotting & Dirty Tricks, so I'm glad to be able to give something back :-)
Martyn I am so happy you are keeping the bike. As you know that bike and my son George have a strong connection so he had wanted you to keep it. My donation is on its way!
Seen your video. Very inspirational. Stay on that bike dude.
